Diana Orving

This is the dress I should have bought in Paris. I still think fondly of this Diana Orving dress. I tarried and ruminated and picked it up and put it down but ultimately left it at the store. It was hand printed by the designer and can be worn drawn in or left loose or somewhere in between. I could (and would) wear my caftan every day... and this dress has a similar cut (or lack thereof) and shape. There is limited construction, for sure, so maybe I'll just drape something nicely and fix it by hand and ta-da! A new caftan-inspired something or other. But anyway, Diana Orving's work is very cool.
